We generally think of static electricity as something funny to create with our hair and the friction of a balloon, but remember the warning signs at gas pumps. A buildup of static electricity from sliding across your seat as you exit the vehicle could potentially launch a spark igniting gasoline fumes into a fire or explosion.
An extreme example, perhaps. Ever been moving across carpet in a dark room and jumped when touching the light switch produced a static charge spark to appear? It’s literally a tiny example of a lightning bolt striking the ground from the sky. These sudden charges, however small in appearance, have the potential to damage electronics and other components.
In the winter, static electricity in our homes is more prevalent because humidity is lower, making the air less conductive, thereby increasing the effect.
